The New York Burlesque Festival brings superstars from around the globe together with five shows in one sparkly long weekend. This unique event captures the best of what NYC nightlife has to offer and then some, featuring over 100 artists from across the globe! Local celebrities of the nightlife such as comedienne Murray Hill (NYC), Medianoche (NYC), Angie Pontani (NYC), Dirty Martini (NYC), and Julie Atlas Muz (NYC) will be featured as well as Ariana Savalas (Hollywood) — Postmodern Jukebox's singer and daughter of Telly Savalas — and many more!
A young woman who had never felt comfortable in her own skin reflects upon her unlikely path to self-discovery: stripping. It's a quirky, vulnerable, not-so-typical story about a woman finding her confidence, sexuality, and self-love. Written entirely by Kat Blackwood in 19 hours, Becoming Frankie is an official selection of this year's New York New Works Theatre Festival. It is being directed by Kat's dear friend, the hugely talented Dan Moldovan.
The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to present Hedda, the world premiere adaptation of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler through the darkly comic and absurd lens of playwright Carol Brown.
Returning to Norway from a three-month honeymoon abroad, Hedda Gabler finds herself trapped in an unfurnished house, surrounded by her uninspiring and academic husband. Trapped by moving boxes. Trapped by talks of academia. Trapped.
The sudden inflow of guests and ghosts from the past provide Hedda the opportunity to stir the pot, creating some brief diversions to pass the time. As her actions continue to alter the lives of those around her, Hedda propels herself closer and closer to the brink of insanity.
The cast is comprised of Carol Brown (The Good Wife"), Tim Thomas (original company of Into the Woods), Madeleine Rogers (Juilliard), Max Samuels (Angry Young Man), and Mike Labbadia (cofounder of Produced by Actors).

NYU Skirball and the French Institute Alliance Française's (FIAF) Crossing the Line Festival will present the American premiere of In Search of Dinozord by Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula. In Search of Dinozord delves into the art, politics, and turbulent history of the Congo.
The premiere is presented as part of part of BRIDGING: An International Dialogue on Diversity and Inclusion in the Arts. A new initiative launched by the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and FIAF during Crossing the Line 2016, BRIDGING explores issues of cultural equity across cultures. It will be performed in French with English supertitles.
Faustin Linyekula's riveting work often addresses themes of memory, forgetting and dreams. With his country's history as a catalyst, he considers the impact that decades of war, trauma, and economic uncertainty have.
NEC SPE / NEC METU (no hope / no fear) is a collection of two dovetailing monodramas.
In NEC SPE, the great Baroque painter Caravaggio confesses his hideous sins to an imagined or ethereal priest after his own brutal and untimely death, possibly searching for forgiveness. But his swagger and violent personality leave us to question whether he truly wants his sins washed away, or whether he would rather justify his actions in the eyes of God and man.
In NEC METU, the great Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi recounts her notorious rape and torture in order to reclaim her legacy and illuminate her brilliant life and art. She tells her story with wry wit and humor, offering an alternative and often-neglected perspective on art history and her intimate relationships with some of the world's greatest artists.
The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
Note: Performance dates and locations vary. For more information, visit the Goethe-Institut website (URL below).
Detailing the exploits of two American men who travel to Amsterdam to hire a female prostitute, Adam Rapp's Red Light Winter confronts the expectations of fantasy, the disappointment of reality, and the complexities of unrequited love — a twisted and complicated web, spanning Amsterdam's Red Light District to the East Village.
The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to feature Red Light Winter as part of The Bridge Residency: a monthlong residency at the Robert Moss Theater, presenting Red Light Winter in rotating repertory with Hedda and The Sonnets.
Red Light Winter contains explicit language and simulated sex, and is recommended for mature audiences.
Tony Award-winning actor and singer Alan Cumming (Cabaret), multi-Golden Globe-nominated actor and singer Lea Michele (Glee), and Emmy-nominated songwriter, musician, and actor Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) headline the third annual Elsie Fest.

Elvis Duran hosts this one-day outdoor music festival that celebrates stars and songs from the stage and screen.
